Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I am a HEAVY underarm sweater. So it was no surprise that this medication barely helped reduce my underarm sweat. Not to mention, the bottle only lasts for less the month, a tleast for me. I recommend you save your money and stay away from this product if you think your hyperhidrosis is beyond bad."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I have been sweating for a while. I love Drysol! It has helped me greatly, and I am very happy my doctor recommended it. There is a downside to it though... It can itch and sting if you put it on daily. If you want to avoid this, I'd put it on every other day, and don't wear it over the weekend. I'd ask your doctor about this though! It is a great product, and I'd recommend this to everyone!"

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I must say that I am truly greatful that my doctor prescribed this. It changed my life so much that I don't have to be ashamed of the odor caused by sweating under my arms anymore because it's gone. I've tried almost every deodorant over the counter there is and nothing worked. Because of drysol I now have the confidence to walk around freely wearing clothing other than all cotton and not have sweat marks under my arms. I am so thankful for this product and glad I went to the doctor about my problem which led me to discover this product."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I had been sweating from my armpits excessively for 4-5 years starting when I was about 12. I was always wearing baggy dark clothing and avoiding constant movement so people would see my sweat. I am now 18 and my dermatologist recently prescribed this to me. I can honestly say that it has changed my life. Even in 90 degree weather there is no sweat from my underarms. The only down side is the itching/burning, however, if I use it at night it is usually gone by noon the next day. I have learned to use this only 2-3 times a week and especially not after shaving. This product is worth it."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I was prescribed Drysol due to going off my birth control pills and started having crazy hormonal imbalances. My sweat glands changed, which is kinda crazy and as embarrassing this is to say, my sweat started smelling and it was awful. I have never had smelly issues before, ever, so something had to be done. But do not use this after shaving, it feels like a million little knives going into your armpits. :( and I personally would recommend using every other day for the first 2 weeks and don't shave if you can help it. Just makes it worse if you do. Otherwise, my experience has been really positive! It has stopped my sweating issues and no more embarrassing odor. :) :)"

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I am suffering the furiously itchy armpits right now after use. I'm hoping it doesn't get worse this time. I know it works, but the irritation has been bad in the past. I last used this 6 years ago when I had shaven right before use and was left with scabs and infected looking rashes. Luckily, it faded in a few days but I swore it off after that. Then, a couple years later I had a baby and nursed for two years so obviously I did not want these chemicals near her face. However, my hyperhidrosis seems to have worsened in the past couple years. I will sit at an IEP (Individualized Education Program) meeting wearing all black (I am not goth but I dress like it) and sweating to my elbows. Drysol is the clear retort. The Itchiness is misery but I will wear a colorful top tomorrow!"

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "In school and gym class I would always sweat sooooo much and it was extremely embarrassing. In the slightest heat I would sweat buckets even without any activity. This worked the day after applying and I was simply amazed at how wonderful it works. Only downside is after you apply it it itches but itching makes the skin irritated so you kinda have to grin and bear it."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "This has changed my life. I had sweated profusely since 2nd grade. My whole life up until a year ago I was never able to wear the clothes I wanted and I was embarrassed multiple times from sweating so much. I was a joke. But last spring (age 23) I started drysol and my life has changed. My only regret is that I didn't get it sooner in life."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I'm am a 18 year old girl whose been sweating since the 6th grade. Its Soo embarrassing that I used to wear mostly black so no one would see the pit stains. Drysol works really great. The only downside I would say is that if I use it everyday or after I shave, it has the worst burning/itching sensation."

Hypercare (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "It only burns when putting on after shaving or in excessive amounts. I have been using it for years and only need to apply it about once a month to keep armpits from having an odor. I do not ever sweat anymore. So glad I bought this product"

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I'm a 46 year old female that has struggled with severe sweaty armpits, feet and hands since I was 13. I've researched and tried so many products that failed me. But this truly works. It takes about 2 days for it to actually stop the sweating process but once it's in your pores you can use every other day. Your armpits are odourless. The unfortunate part is...do not use after shaving it will burn itch and cause a horrible outbreak but otherwise this product is a true BLESSING to all who sweat beyond control like I did..."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I've had to deal with my sweating problems ever since 4th grade. I am now in college and I'm happier than ever that I found this product. For years I received botox injections to stop my sweating in my armpits. However, that pain was unimaginable. I switched to Drysol and I have never been happier. I can wear my shirts now without having to worry. Definitely would recommend this product to anyone who feels stuck with no solution to their sweating"

Certain Dri (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I suffered with hyperhidrosis for years. I could be shivering cold and my armpits would still be pouring sweat. Wearing gray was out of the question! Then I found an antiperspirant containing aluminum chloride: Not to be overdramatic...but it changed my life! At first, I dealt with the unbearable itching and irritation. After a while, I learned to use less and only apply it at night. After a couple months of daily use, I reduced to every other day...then every few days...and after a year I eventually just stopped using it because the problem seemed to disappear completely. That was 15 years ago! To this day I still do not sweat under my arms unless I'm really exerting myself...and still it's such a small amount. Less than "normal" people."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I am glad my dermatologist prescribed this for me to use on my armpits. Initially, I tried using it once a day and it broke me out and I had the itchy-stinging side effect. From thereon, I learned to use it about every 2 days and it keeps me dry along with another prescribed topical treatment. I also use Drysol for my oily face and it works! It calms my oily glands and it produces less oil especially on my nose. If you use Drysol on your face, test it on a small area of your face with a cottonball. I don't use it everyday on my face. I only use it once a week on my face and every other day on my nose. My results were minimal oil production on my face and no need to blot my face throughout the day."

Certain Dri (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "Try this product. Follow the directions. It worked for me. I lived the first 30 yrs of my life "pitted out". I used it regularly for about one year. Now, I still sweat during exertion, which I consider normal, but, I mostly only use deodorant products. I used this product when it was only sold thru the pharmacy window. Now you can get it on the shelf right next to all the other anti perspirant / deodorant products."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "My dermatologist recently prescribed this to me because of how much I sweat. Before, not even 10 minutes out of the shower I'm already sweating even if I have the air conditioner on, even during the winter, and generally just way more sweat than seems normal. I saw awesome results within a day, there was extremely little sweat, and a few days after I started, I was walking for about 15 minutes in 90° weather and there was barely any perspiration. The only downside is that I learned the hard way not to put it on right after shaving during a shower, and for some reason my armpits became somewhat discolored no matter what I did."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I am someone who sweats anytime under my arms, it could be for any reason and I would filter my life around it. Loose shirts, dark colors, and I would rarely ever raise my arms for the fear that I would show my stains of sweat. Talked to my dermatologist and they offered my Drysol and I absolutely loved that I could wear anything and I wouldn't sweat, but it does have its downside to it. I am a girl and shaving under my arms irritates the crap out of it and burns, I tried to use nair instead of shaving and it burns even more. I honestly do not know what to do."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I have suffered with excessive sweating on my scalp for 4 - 5 years, many times staying home rather than be embarrassed by sweat dripping off my hair. After 4 nights of using Drysol, I put it to the test and attended a swim meet for one of my grandkids, 90 degree temperature, and my scalp stayed DRY! The benefit of this far outweighs the temporary tingling and itchy feeling when applied to my scalp. My dermatologist who prescribed Drysol for me is my HERO!"

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I am a 40 year old male who since I can remember, would sweat excessively under his arms. It does not matter if I was stressed, if I was hot, cold, etc. The worst is when it's 20 degrees outside, I'm freezing, yet my shirt is soaked under my arms. That drove me nuts. I used to sit at work, and keep a stash of paper towels at my desk that I would sit under my arms so that the sweat marks would be less visible. Black was my favorite shirt color, especially on days when I had to present to a room full of people. I applied Drysol the first night and the next day, 100 percent dry! I feel like a new person! I can wear tighter shirts and I can even wear grey! There was some discomfort after applying, but it's well worth it, in my opinion!"

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "This stuff is absolutey amazing. I never could wear anything but black because I sweat so much in my armpits. I started using this a couple years ago. When I first started it I had to use it once every couple weeks. Then only once every 6 months and now it's been over a year and I don't have to use it and I'm not sweating. It felt like it saved my life in a way. I'm so happy I found it."

Hypercare (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I had no problem with hyperhidrosis until I passed the age of 40. Then it suddenly became a huge problem. Peri-menopause perhaps. I began sweating profusely and became very self-conscious about my body odor. I tried many different anti-perspirants/deodorants, including "clinical strength." They would work for a short time, then stop working. I mentioned this to my nurse practitioner and she suggested I try this. It really works! I will admit the itching/tingling/stinging is annoying, but worth dealing with to have dry pits! I used Hypercare for a few years, but recently was prescribed Drysol. They seem to work equally well and have the same side effects for me."

Drysol (aluminum chloride hexahydrate) for Hyperhidrosis: "I sweat mostly everywhere. Pits aren't the only place. It's my face, chest, back of my thighs, groin area, hands, feet... you get it. I've been like this since puberty n it got a lot worse (of course) after I started working out regularly. I use Drysol mostly on my armpits maybe twice a week n I don't sweat at all. I apply it very lightly n only directly where I actually perspire from (the center of my pit) n then rub it around a little by doing a circular funky chicken-like movement. For everywhere else I only use it maybe once a month, it's effective for a couple of days. For my face (forehead, nose, n very lightly above my upper lip), I use a cotton ball as the applicator dispenses too much at a time. The itchiness is killer tho!!!!!"
